Criminal Justice Administration (Major, Minor)
Campbellsville’s Criminal Justice Administration curriculum provides a thorough understanding of crime and the criminal justice system.
Core areas of study include law enforcement, corrections, the courts, criminology, juvenile delinquency, and victimology. Currently, we offer a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Administration and a Minor in Homeland Security.
Our degree programs place a strong emphasis on ethics, human values, and analytical skills required for a fulfilling career in criminal justice. We also provide a strong foundation for students who plan to attend graduate school.
The Criminal Justice Administration program is offered at the main campus in Campbellsville, and at our regional centers in Louisville, Somerset and Harrodsburg.
